This story has been slightly under the radar. The Department of No Education is buying shotguns for its police force.
According to documentation, the Department of Education’s office of Inspector General ordered for delivery – probably this week sometime – 27 Remington 870 12-gauge shotguns with 14 inch barrels for officials in just two offices.
Education Department spokeswoman Catherine Grant explained the office is a “law enforcement agency.”
“The Office of Inspector General is the law enforcement arm of the U.S. Department of Education and is responsible for the detection of waste, fraud, abuse, and other criminal activity involving federal education funds, programs, and operations,” Grant said.
As such, its agents have full law enforcement authority, she said.
Meanwhile, here’s what happens when you give guns to underskilled, incompetent, federal employees who don’t have the wherewithal to get good jobs in the private sector. They lose their guns in public places.
